Loving God, Loving Neighbor

Our Logo

Glenn Memorial Logo

The stylized “G” . . . 

in our logo was inspired by the great oak trees that surround our sanctuary.  There’s something about those trees that speaks of strength and stability. Arborists tell us they were planted well over 100 years ago.  Like a tree Jesus talked about in one of his parables, those oaks grew and “the birds made their nests in their branches.”

Our church is like that.  In 1920, a handful of people planted a seed that has grown to become Glenn Memorial as we know it.

Over the years, thousands of people have found a spiritual home in Glenn’s branches.  Countless others have had their sufferings relieved, their burdens lessened, and their hopes lifted by its missions and ministries.

Like the Glenn oaks, we have deep roots in the past.  Our logo reminds us that the function of roots is to produce new growth.
 

“Loving God, Loving Neighbor” . . .

sums up our mission, which is to fulfill the First Commandment of Jesus by loving God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength; and loving our neighbor as ourselves.  (Mark 12:30, 31)
